Funny, when I saw the rumor that 8/30/80 would be the pick I wondered, "Why not 11/30/80?"
It's also amusing that the New Yorker writer is doing the liner notes, having at last persuaded Lemieux about the glories of this show!

What grabbed my ear was that it's a matrix release (their first)...the AUD level is a lot lower than the 11/30/80 Sick Bits matrix on the Archive, though; just enough to make it a bit boomier.
I wonder if they felt a treatment like this was the only way an early-'80s release was going to happen, since the SBDs of that period are often pretty dry or unbalanced. (A lot of people prefer the 11/30/80 AUD to the SBD, for instance.)
It indicates that they might take the matrix approach with '80s releases in the future. I do worry a bit that this will give Norman an expanded opportunity to play tricks with the mixing (like boosting up the audience reactions here & there).

It is wise to see the possible downsides, though I think this might be a good thing for now . To be honest, I was hoping they would take a stab into the mid 80's , but this decision to use more AUD , might help that . After spending the last few years listening to more early 80's, I'm glad to see one from the post Warfield/Radio City shows . I think 1980 was sort of overlooked by some of us, who were underwhelmed by "Dead Set" (though Reckoning was another mater) .
Now we can all start speculating on the next projects !

It seems certain that the show DL keeps referring to is 10 December 1969. In the live chat thing he referred to another show coming out next year being from the December '69 to February '70 batch where only two reels were available, with three additional reels found. He later referred to the show as coming from December '69. Also when someone asked about his favourite Easy Winds he referred to listening to the Easy Winds on 11 and 12 December 1969 recently.

Unless I'm missing something, I think this must be it.

If they use an AUD, do they pay the taper or just give him/her liner note credit?

Surely you get a free copy... at the very least they'd throw the taper a bone with an advanvced advance pre-sale code.

In all seriousness, do we know which taper's recording they used?

And yes, I too cringe at the thought of jacking up the crowd reactions for an unnatural sounding release. Might as well call it Gracia Comes Alive.

I'm sure he will get some money. It would be just taking advantage of him to not pay him because what taper could resist having their recording become an official GD release?

And I believe it is Bob Wagner's recording they're using.

If you look on the back of Dick's Picks 35, they give special thanks to Harvey Kaslow and Craig Todd for use of their famous 8-6-71 aud tape for the tracks on disc 4. The also thank the Godcheauxs whose contribution was returning the sbds from the houseboat. I suspect that's all Wagner is getting as well. Truthfully does he deserve monetary compensation and if so why is this different than someone who legally owns the 5-8-77 betty boards getting compensated? Clearly they have no interested in paying that guy.

It is Wagner's according to DL.

Congrats on making it through on the live chat. I did not listen. What did you ask?

I asked him about his favorite show from fall 72, he responded with essentially every show, lol.

I also asked about whether phil was playing his gibson or guild for the daves picks 6 release and he didnt know, i assume its the gibson but was hoping he'd know for sure.

He didnt answer my questions about how we need a 1968 release :(

Yeah, my guess is Wagner too. Moore did great recording, but in Berger's release notes he wonders if this was really Moore's work.

"*I'm not 100% sure if JM taped this
or not. It appears that it's spread
out over 3-4 tapes in a manner most
un-moore-like. The drums fade out and
I can't remember a tape where Jerry
faded out before a flip.
Regardless, I wish I had the rest of
the show from this source to share.
Hat's off to and thanks Jerry or whomever
taped this.
I wouldn't post a chopped up partial, but
this is one helluva recording that begs
to be turned up loud
( in my humble opinion of course ). :)"
